In 2017, producer Ishari Ganesh announced a new film titled 'Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja' starring Vishal, Karthi, and Sayyeshaa. Penned by Subash, Prabhu Deva roped in to direct the film and Harris Jayaraj composed five songs for the film.
"Karthi and Vishal agreed to act together in Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja and we all decided that the profit gained in the film should be used to build the Nadigar Sangam building. Harris composed five songs and we even conducted a few days shoot. If Vishal was keen on Nadigar Sangam building, he would have joined the shoot but he didn't", said Ishari Ganesh, producer of 'Jayam' Ravi's Comali and RJ Balaji's LKG.
Now Madras HC has ordered fresh polls for Nadigar Sangam. "If Vishal wants to complete the construction of Nadigar Sangam building, he should not appeal again as it would only delay the building works".
